Alexia Foundation has recently started accepting applications for its 2016 production Grants competition open for students and professional photographers around the world.
Grants are awarded to give voice to those who go unheard, foster cultural understanding and expose social injustice. Alexia Foundation intends to give them the financial ability to produce substantial stories that drive change in the effort to make the world a better place.
The Professional Grant Winner will receive $20,000 (US) to produce his or her proposed project. Several different grants will be given out as part of the Student Awards to both undergraduate and graduate students.
Alexia Foundation Grants are created to support still photography projects, but you may also submit other story forms as part of your grant application submission. Those may include audio, motion, VR or any other visual format.
The deadline for submissions for the Professional Grant is 2 p.m. 31 January 2016. The Student Grant application will open 3 February 2016 with the deadline at 2 p.m. on 3 March 2016.
